 We have a winner!!
Deborah in Atlanta said...I'm so glad I found you, and can't wait to read what you're up to next!

Deborah was comment #13! Lucky 13!!  I used Random.org to determine the winner and it was Deborah's lucky day! 
Thank you to everyone who took part in the giveaway!  I want to welcome all my newest followers to my blog and want to thank some of my old time friends for showing up for the party as well!


Come back soon because more fun is on the horizon!!


(FYI: There were a small handful who did not visit Jenn's blog and leave her some love so as it was part of the requirements for being in the drawing, your names were disqualified... Sorry)


Are you all ready for another fabulous giveaway?? As if you haven't figured out yet, I am trying to bring all of my followers out of hiding and the last giveaway got several front and center!  Come on, come out come out where-ever you are! We are going to have some fun times coming up and you don't want to miss them! :) ... Tell your friends to come along too!  They like to have fun too I would bet!

Jenn has graciously offered up a 2nd gift to be given away here on my blog!  She is the co-owner of Quilters Depot located at 4160 Library Rd. Castle Shannon Pa 15236.

This is what Jenn has to say this month:

All of us at Quilters Depot hope that you like this goodie bag we have put together for the giveaway!

We all love doing shop hops?  Right?  So that is our theme for you.  We have included in our fancy red Quilters Depot Hobo bag our shop hop quilt block kit.  It includes a copy of each block you would have collected had you been on the 2011 Western Pa Shop Hop!

Below is a picture of our quilt. 
 We did it in two color combinations.  Our first is our tribute to Pittsburgh since we are a sports town of Black and Gold.  My hope is to quilt it on the Handiquilter Pro-stitcher in Stanley cups and penguins (Let’s go Pens) and donate it to a local charity for children.

The second is our patriotic quilt!  
 We are debating whether this will be donated to the Quilts of Valor program or if we are going to hang on to the quilt since it was our first official shop hop quilt!

Also included are the goodies that we gave out to each of our visitors.  Everyone can always use a pen with our logo and a fat quarter and the keychain has an eyeglass cleaner!   We threw some other stuff in for good measure!

What’s new at Quilters Depot is that I have started my own blog!  Figured it was time!

Check it out when you have a chance!

I have decided that this is the best way for my customers to keep up on what’s new at the store and any breaking news is posted here first.  Check it out even if you are far away from the burgh!  Maybe something will grab your attention and you will just have to come visit us! ... (or give her a call and she can take your order right over the phone)!

Some of the events we are planning in the near future are kids related!  In July, we have 5 days of small day camp activities.  We are going to teach gift bags, knitting, hand embroidery, yo-yo’s and sewing a t-shirt hobo bag.  We also have a beginning sewing for kids making pajama pants and later in the fall we will be starting Kids Quilting 101!  Our goal is to bring the love we have for quilting at the Depot to the next generation!  Our Second anniversary is rapidly approaching in September.  We will throw a party, but details are unknown for now.  In code that means I have not sat down and planned yet!  On one hand it’s hard to believe we have been open 2 years already and other times it seems like only 2 years.  Wow!

Thanks to the Pigtales and Quilts Blog for letting us introduce ourselves to you.  Come to Pittsburgh and visit anytime!

What a lovely bag of yumyums. Headed to Jenn’s new blog to see what she has created for us. I lived near Valley Forge until I was 15 years old and relocated to South Florida; PA will always hold a very special place in my heart. One of my “Sisters” still lives there and we keep in touch too.

Greetings! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
If you have any suggestions, please share.
Cheers!
